Would it be worth it to upgrade to Windows XP when it's released. I've had nothing but problems with Windows ME, but I don't want to unload everything to put Win-98 SE back on if Win - XP would fix my problems.

Hi Rich,

I do not believe going from ME to XP will solve your problem If anything it will give you more since it requires more from your computer than ME does.The requirements for XP far outwieght the requirements that Win 98 use.With the upgrades that you would have to do it would not be worth the effort,and you would be better off buying a new computer with XP installed.

Thank You,
